We have kept busy with group activities, including using the natural landscape to make mandalas (pictured below) as well as presenting our Independent Study Projects from the homestay in San Juan. Five of the students (pictured below) choose art projects for their ISP: Howard, Worth and Oona studied traditional weaving and Drew and Kaitlyn studied traditional painting. The others studied a wide range of topics including permaculture design, medicinal plants and local libraries. Love to all the families and we are looking forward to seeing you soon!

    [post_content] => hey yall. i have yet to write a yak but it seems only appropriate that i should explain a bit about the poop scale as it is a crucial part of our group culture. every morning, at our group check in, we go around in a circle and rate our poops on a scale from one to ten. 5 would be the optimal number, with anything greater indicating constipation and anything less indicating varying levels of diarrhea. if u havent pooped since the last check in, you must make this known by declaring T-minus how many days since your last poop. this way, everyone is conscious of their own/everyone elses health. since the introducition of the poop scale at orientation, pooping has been referred to by some as "scoring one" as in scoring one on the poop scale. i think i speak for everyone when i say that the poop scale has greatly improve my life quality and course experience. i have thoroughly enjoyed the supportive high fives that often accompany the proud declaration of a 5 at our morning meetings. i hope to help dragons globalize the trend in my later travels and introduce it into my own life.

    [post_content] => Dear Manuela,

Thank you for everything. Whether you knew it or not, you were in many ways one of the most important teachers of my life. The lessons you taught me about perseverence, familial love, and modesty have undoubtedly allowed me to grow as a person and will resonate with me forever. While you may have thought of me as your host brother, to me you were my host mother. Even more than that you were a teacher, a friend, and above all one of the most admirable people I have had the opportunity to learn from. Though you were the same age as me, I never thought of you that way. Even when your mother was home it was your home, and you were providing for me the same way you do for your siblings who every day showed the same glaring appreciation and admiration for you the way I wish I could have. My time with you was unforgettable, and for that I cannot thank you enough.

Dilan

    [post_content] => Our homestay in Cotzal was admittedly very short but I believe it to be filled with many memorable experiences. For one, we helped the weaving cooperative there build a community center. It was a lot of work and we were only able to accomplish a small bit of what it will take to actually finish the community center. However, I am glad that we were able to experience the hardships that the people in the cooperative go through in order to reach their well-deserved goals. We also helped them plant some frijoles in a field. After only two days of work, I was sore everywhere. I saw and experienced how much work and effort goes into the can of beans that is so easily purchased at your local grocery store.

Cotzal

Description

Our homestay in Cotzal was admittedly very short but I believe it to be filled with many memorable experiences. For one, we helped the weaving cooperative there build a community center. It was a lot of work and we were only able to accomplish a small bit of what it will take to actually finish the […]

    [post_content] => Hello to all families and friends,

Yesterday, we arrived in our transference house after an 8 hour bus ride.  The house (which is really hotel) is 3 stories, red, and surrounded by woods on 3 sides.  After settling into our rooms and eating a delicious dinner, some of us played cards in the basement as well as some man hunt around the property.  While playing cards at around 11 p.m., there were three knocks on the downstairs door in the basement, which we heard, but ignored.  About 15 seconds later we heard it again and went to go check it out.  Worth opened the door and looked both ways outside, and having seen no one, he closed and locked the door and we returned to our cards.  That was when we saw a dark silouhette walk past the door.  Dilan then went up to the door and held up the curtain to see if he could see anyone.  After getting a little spooked, he dropped the curtain and attempted to run away, but was wearing socks and ended up on the tile floor.  We then finally opened the door for the last time and realized that we were being pranked by Erick the whole time.  We then had one of the best nights of sleeps in a while and woke up completely refreshed for today.  That has been our transference experience thus far.

    [post_content] => While in San Juan Cotzal I stayed with a woman named Teresa. She was one of the older homestay mothers (if not the oldest), and she shared her experience of the Guatemalan Civil War with us as a group. She also fed me noodles - a lot of noodles - noodles at every meal noodles. In addition to some mild diarrhea, this inspired me to have the opposite of lackluster noodles as soon as we left Cotzal.

So I did. On the day of the bus ride I had one of my most nutritional days I've ever had. I ate:

1 plate of fried potato-slice things with two hard-boiled eggs (breakfast at my homestay)

1 bowl of pasta (no homestay breakfast could be complete without pasta)

4 (albeit small) bags of Ranchitos (knock off Dorito's)

2 Bags of Tortrix Lime chips (basically lime Fritos)

1 enormous sleeve of coconut cookies

1 Twix Ice Cream Bar (Incredible. I highly recommend this one.)

1 Snickers Ice Cream Bar (I had to try both. This one is not as good).

1 bottle (plastic) of Coca Cola.

1 Suprema from ChapinBurger in Chichicastenango (3 patties, 3 slices of cheese, 1 fried egg)

1 bottle of water.

1 small serving of fries.

1 scoop of pistachio ice cream in a waffle cone

1 bottle of water

1 pack of peanut M&Ms

1 balanced meal at our Transference House

2 cups of coffee

1 pack of chocolate cookies

 

Surprisingly, I got diarrhea again.

    [post_content] => In the past three days, I've been working on a scarf in a textile cooperative called Batz, named after a Nawal in Maya culture. I must first appreciate the patient demonstration and instruction from my lovely teacher, Analydia. The process of weaving a scarf is basically separated into four steps, which in Spanish are: enrollar (to roll the yarn), urdir (to weave), tejer (to knit), and acabar (to finish). All four steps are difficult for me in some ways, but I managed to conquer all of them, except for tejer, eventually. For tejer, professional weavers do this part at least 50 times faster than me while the other three parts, well, they can still do at least 10 times faster than me.

I've also learned about the tools they use to weave, such as a devandera, urdidora, and so on and I'm really amazed by the fact that weavers can make such fabulous products with such simple tools.

The weaving has been both interesting and inspiring. It has proved the theory of "practice makes perfect," while it has also shown me the worship of craftsmanship.

Yak post written on Sunday, July 16th before the trek:

Hello to all families and friends!

      After eating our last breakfast with our host families, loading up our packs on the bus, and bidding farewell to the people we met and the city of San Juan La Laguna, the group embarked on a 7 hour ride to Todos Santos.  This ride including a rise of 4,000 feet in altitude, windy hills, and bumpy roads, took a toll on everyone in the group.  However, with a pizza lunch at a nice hotel on the way, and a stop at an overlook about an hour from our destination, we were able to have some fun conversations, see some cool sites, and enjoy our long journey to Todos Santos.  After leaving at 9:00 am and arriving at the hotel, "La Casa Familia" at 6:00 pm, we were done for the night.  We settled into our hotel rooms, took some much needed hot showers, and went to bed.  Today we ate breakfast with our trek guide, Roberto.  We asked him questions regarding the trek and based off of his answers, we were able to prepare and collect food and water for the trek tomorrow.  With most of our bags packed and ready to go, we are almost set to head off tomorrow morning for our trek, so we will be offline for the next few days.  Wish us all luck on the trek!  We will be writing more upon our return.
